THE STINSON TEAM
Welcome! I am thrilled to introduce myself as a seasoned real estate professional with decades of experience in the industry. As a native of Indiana and with a family background in real estate, I have developed a deep passion for helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals in Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas.
I am not only a real estate expert but also have a background in information technology, which allows me to provide my clients with a seamless and efficient experience. My top priority is always my clients’ satisfaction, and I take great pride in being a trusted advisor throughout the entire buying or selling process.
I firmly believe that real estate is a people-focused business, and I take the time to listen to my clients’ needs and concerns to provide them with the best possible guidance and support. With my wealth of knowledge regarding post-closing activities and local community resources, I can offer my clients a comprehensive and unparalleled level of service.
In addition to my work as a real estate agent, I am an active member of the Fort Wayne community and volunteer my time and resources to support local charities and organizations. I am committed to making a positive impact in the lives of those around me.
I am known as Fort Wayne’s BIGGEST Realtor, and I specialize in working with buyers, sellers, commercial opportunities, foreclosed properties, and investor/investment properties. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, relocating, or upgrading to your next home, I am here to guide you towards a successful real estate transaction.
Lori is a Fort Wayne native and shares in the enthusiasm of Fort Wayne’s growth and transformation. Having been around the real estate business for years, Lori brings a history of the Fort Wayne real estate business. Lori’s success has been attributed to earning the trust of her clients and their referrals. Her clients become friends and she cherishes helping them make a house a home.
Lori received a BS in Business from Indiana University and was a member of the Women’s Golf Team. After serving as an Assistant Professional at the Fort Wayne Country Club, she pursued coaching collegiate golf at Tri-State University and Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI.
In addition to enjoying her work with The Stinson Team, Lori loves to serve her community. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne and helps Washington Elementary with Study Connection as well as the Rotary Interact program at New Tech High School.
Lori also serves on the Purdue Fort Wayne Athletic Advisory Board, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Coalition Board. She has also served on the YWCA Board and LPGA Amateurs Board.
Born and raised in North Eastern Indiana, I bring a unique knowledge of this community, the market, and the people. My sensitivity to the marketplace comes from a single yet powerful perspective: Fort Wayne is more than just a market, it's home. I understand the need for distinctive real estate representation. Today, as a designated Realtor® specializing in the Fort Wayne market, I couldn't ask for a better job.
My spare time is currently occupied by my three active Carroll Middle schoolers and I wouldn't have it any other way. Family life is paramount to me and I take every available opportunity to spend quality time with my husband and three children. I especially enjoy traveling, baking with my girls, watching my son on the football field, and going to see live music with my husband.
I have called Fort Wayne my home for 40 years. I have been involved in working with the public for most of my life. I spent 15 years in Commercial and Residential Real Estate and 5 years with my family owned Funeral Home.I know how to listen and work behind the scenes to accomplish a common goal. I joined the Stinson Team in 2018 as their office manager. A job that I love. I have two adult children that grew up in Fort Wayne, and two granddaughters that I travel often to see.
I enjoy running on my spare time and have completed marathons, half marathons and local community races.
PHIL & JUDI STINSON
Judi started the Stinson team back in 1985. Both her and Phil worked for Navistar at that time and she was being transferred to Chicago. Both Brad and Lori were still in high school and heavily involved in athletics and she did not want to be the weekend mom. Her business exploded immediately, as Navistar was one of the biggest employers in Fort Wayne and had folks moving in and out of town regularly. Phil retired in 1992 and began helping Judi. Together they built an entire business on taking care of their past clients who continue to send us business to this day. Almost 100% of their business was repeat or referral. They both retired from active business in April of 2019, but their clients are still sending folks our way. When they are not golfing, both Phil and Judi are active bridge players!
